With our past success rate, we can cater for all your planning needs and can create efficient and practical proposals and drawings for all kinds of Planning Applications, Permitted Development Proposals and Building Control Applications. Whether you would like to extend your property, convert your loft or garage or develop a plot of land, we can help you get approval from your Local Planning Authority. We can advise you about the maximum development options to increase the value of your home.

We will create a functional, aesthetic, practical and cost-effective plan for your budget. We are aware that most of our proposals are time-conscious, especially regarding building schedules. Planning Application decisions usually take around 8-12 weeks with your LA. Upon appointment, we endeavour to conduct a site survey within 3-5 working days and the turnaround time for drawings we generally set at 3 weeks but dependent on our work schedule we can sometimes aim for 2 weeks. Having worked in the planning sector for a number of years, we have built relationships with many tradesmen and contractors. Therefore, if you would like advice on construction works, do get in touch for further details and we can make a quotation for our support services at the construction phase.


If you’ve outgrown your home or want to add value, then a single storey extension could be the ideal solution for you. We have extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with single storey extensions throughout the Home Counties.

Whether you want to extend your garage, have a bigger kitchen, add a dining room or snug, or even install a pool, we can design your dream, advise on building regulations and apply for planning permission to your local council on your behalf.

Our services make extending your home simple and straightforward. Plus, with careful design, the new extension can be added with minimal disturbance to the household during the construction phase.

So, no matter what type of single storey extension you’re interested in adding to your property, we can help

Double storey extensions are a great way of getting a much larger, higher value home without all the hard work and stress of having to move house. We have expertise in designing and project managing double storey extensions, so we can help you from start to finish. Whether you want a side extension or a rear extension, we are here to help.

We have extensive experience in applying for – and being granted planning permission throughout the home counties, deciphering building regulations and working with clients to achieve their desired outcomes, so we can help you whatever your requirements.

CIM Services are well versed in maximising light and space and we can seamlessly blend the style of your existing property with your new extension. So, no matter what type of two storey extension you’re interested in adding to your property, we can help. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us for more information.


Whether you want a new master bedroom with an ensuite, a playroom for the kids, a walk-in wardrobe, or even a home gym, we can help!

We have extensive knowledge and experience dealing with loft extensions and loft conversions. As space in the South East is at a premium, it’s not always possible to create a single storey or double storey extension. Often a loft conversion is the best way to maximise your property’s space and value.

Not all loft conversions will need planning permission, but they will need to conform to fire regulations. We will listen to your requirements and design a space that not only gives you the additional room you crave but will also ensure it conforms to building regulations.  With us, you will get a comprehensive architectural service to help you transform your home.

Why not get in touch to find out more about how we could help you take your home to the next level.
